Great to see you here Leanne! Very cool to hear about what you're doing. May I ask which countries you focus on? 

That sounds super interesting! Would you be willing to send me an email with some of your details? I think your research and work could be extremely interesting for our nature conservation magazine; Ubuntu Magazine. Perhaps we could do an interview with you :) Let me know if you'd be interested!

Thank you Thirza! That means the world to me.

Welcome to WildHub, Ninying! Would you share some of what you've learned studying African grey parrots?

Welcome to WildHub Ninying. So interesting to hear about your research! I visited Cameroon a couple of months ago and although we saw quite some African grey parrots I was not aware of their place in the communities there, and the threats they face. I would love to stay in touch and to hear more about your work. Maybe we can feature what you do in Ubuntu Magazine in the future.
